SCHOOL REMAINS OPEN
12th January 2017
Weather Update 1pm on Thursday, 12 January
For our area the Met office has reported sleet at 5pm today followed by snow at 7pm, clearing away during the night.
There is a Yellow warning of ice on Friday morning, with ice expected to form on untreated surfaces. The site team will grit our driveway this evening and, depending on the conditions, lay additional grit first thing tomorrow morning.
We have had notification from Hampshire transport department that they have advised their operators that if they can't guarantee completion of both the ‘in and return journeys to schools’ they should not attempt to run their contracts. Kingston and Richmond areas have advised us that they will make every effort to collect pupils before conditions become too severe. However, in cases where it is not safe to provide return transport, they will not and the school needs to contact parents to ask them to collect their children.
We will continue to monitor the situation.
